Conheça a família algrano

Nós somos apaixonados pelo café e pela tecnologia

A trajetória da algrano até agora...


O projeto é selecionado para o programa Startup Brasil. A equipe também da boas vindas para Fabio: quem desenvolveu toda a plataforma a partir do zero.


A algrano é lançada no “World of Coffee” em Gotemburgo, na Suécia. A plataforma ganha o Prêmio de Inovação Tecnológica e TI da “Specialty Coffee Association of Europe”.


The founders move back to Switzerland after a year being close to producers in the Brazilian coffee fields.


Traded volumes increase, a second employee joins the team to support in managing logistics and back office tasks.


Algrano launches a semi-automatized logistic back-end to increase efficiency in contract execution and on its buyers’ end.


FairTrade joins forces with algrano to build a new way of trading coffee. Algrano launches the first fully transparent and customizable supply chain for roasters. Additionally, algrano hires the first sales manager to increase expansion speed.


Algrano attracts the interest of several private investors and raises more than 2 million CHF to finance its expansion strategy and moves its office from Zug to Zürich.


Algrano becomes a team of 13 employees including experts in software development, design, marketing and sales, coffee quality and logistics.


Algrano has signed up 527 European roasters, 563 producers and 74 cooperatives
